Pohatcong Township School District (41-4200)

Pohatcong Township School District

Pohatcong Township was incorporated on March 4, 1881. It was formed from a part of Greenwich Township located in the extreme southwestern corner of Warren County. In addition, it was the last township to be organized in Warren County. The township name was derived from the Pohatcong Creek, whose beautiful valley forms so much of its territory. Fertile soil and rolling, hilly topography make Pohatcong a picturesque place. Until the current building opened for all grade levels in September of 1999, the school district was formerly housed in two buildings, Shimer School and Warren Glen School.

The mission of the Pohatcong School District is to develop positive attitudes and life skills in order to foster a positive self-concept in all students by enhancing achievement in curriculum standards at all grade levels. Students, staff, and parents focus on the following: success not failure, potential not limitations, strengths not weaknesses, and positives not negatives.
